Cubs News: Maddon on Ali's passing: "Impossible to be better than he was"

by - Senior Editor -

Legendary boxing great Muhammad Ali passed away on Friday and Cubs skipper Joe Maddon discussed the impact that Ali had on his life and the world.

"Really, it's a segment of our history that I don't think will ever be repeated," Maddon said. "I don't think there's ever going to be that group of boxers that come back and provide that kind of entertainment and interest, that kind of charisma and everything else that he had going on. It was a very unique time. I was very fortunate to have experienced it."
